...who knows where she's going
and will keep on until she gets there;
who knows not only what she wants from life
but what she has to offer in return...
who is loyal to family and friends,
who expects no more from others
than she is willing to give;
who guides and inspires
not by quoting others philosophies but by living her own good example;
who accepts both victories and disappointments with the same grace,
and who can rise above life's challenges and move on...
who gives the gifts of her thoughtfulness,
who shows her caring with a word of support,
her understanding with a smile;
a woman who brings joy to others
just by being herself...
Celebrate the joy and power of being a Woman...
